Oz in Jeopardy!

Yup, we've got two more clues! These are from a couple of weeks ago, but technical issues prevented them from being brought to you earlier. First off, in the game for June 4, one of the categories in the Double Jeopardy! round was Terriers. Oz fans are already probably saying, "Hey, how could they not have an Oz clue in that category?" And you'd be correct. The players took their time getting there, but finally revealed this clue for $400:

Rachel, the challenger at the right hand lectern, rang in first and correctly responded with, "Who is Toto?" Sadly, however, despite wagering everything in Final Jeopardy! and giving the correct response, she ended up losing the game by one dollar.

Three days later, in the game for June 7, one of the categories in Double Jeopardy! was Colorful Lyrics from Colorful Songs. Alex would quote some lyrics involving color from a song, and the correct response would be the song title, which also had a (different) color in it. The $1600 clue turned out to be:

Ernest, the defending champion, rang in first and correctly completed the title with "What is Yellow Brick Road?" However, he wagered big in Final Jeopardy! and lost, and so did not successfully defend his title. We should be coming up on the end of the season here in a few weeks, so if you're sick and tired Jeopardy! clues in this blog, don't worry, you'll get a summer break here soon.
